Celebrate National Child Day

Celebrating National Child Day is about celebrating children. All young people have the right to be healthy and protected from harm. Children have a right to have a voice, to be protected from harm and to be provided with their basic needs and every opportunity to reach their full potential. National Child Day is celebrated on November 20th each year. National Child Day has been celebrated across Canada since 1993 to commemorate the United Nations’ adoption of the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of the Child on November 20, 1959, and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child on November 20, 1989.
